Assuming DMG+60% and 0 Physical Resistance, you need 3,125,000 gold to achieve 9999 damage. Every 500 gold adds 1 damage to Money Attack.

EDIT: Changed the amount to a multiple of 500

Righteous Justice, Regal Crown / Feather Crest, Azure Stole +6, Sorcerer's Soul, Soulstone for max damage. Since you're at Miasmal Citadel, replace Sorcerer's Soul with next highest SPR giving equip. I think it's Sapphire Bangle, or use his Arena Charm if you have it.

On a related note, do the Empower LIGHT only affects magic skills? They do not seem to increase Vehrn's physical damage / Divine Glory damage.

Rating Orb Fey, True Neutral Peasant – joined 6 years ago Donovan's damage182.55.XXX.XXX6 years ago
Yup it's Blaze. Regarding multi-targeting, I cannot be sure but I think the default multi-targeting skills do more damage when there is only 1 target too. However, I can be sure that Donovan's single target damage is just around double his AoE damage, which just brings him up to only 2/3 of Meraeador's average AoE damage to a single target.

Btw, I realized I forgot to add Gloria to the list of fire AoE users. She ranks below Donovan in pure damage but that is to be expected.

EDIT: I found Sharla much more useful than Donovan. It's probably because I was overleveled, but I remembered Sharla could 1 hit many mobs with Thunderbolt, even in the Fire Temple for me. Her naturally high agility is also very useful. Gust shield also came in handy once when I brought in a fresh Meraeador to the Red Dragon fight for exp. Sharla buffed him till Red Dragon was doing 0 physical damage on him, while he buffed Legion every turn. That was pretty funny. There's other things like healing, paralysis removal (I found it more useful than numbness), stun+20% that made me like Sharla a lot more.

EDIT: Just did a test using Donovan, Meraeador and Sslen'ck on level 30 Black Eye (150% Resist FIRE, 30 MDEF) in Miasmal Citadel. Equipment and skills are same as above.

Donovan using Blaze, 30 hits:
Average: 1055.266667

Meraeador using Flamethrower, 30 hits:
Average: 1999.133333

Sslen'ck using Fire Breath, 30 hits:
Average: 1975.566667

Sslen'ck using Fire Stream, 30 hits:
Average: 3265.7

I realized that Sslen'ck's Fire Stream damage went way up when it's used against a single target. At least that's what I inferred from observing his AoE damage and single target damage. He could do upwards of 5k on Golem with Fire Stream (with Meraeador doing 3k+), however he could never achieve 9999 on 4 mobs unlike Meraeador.

Also tried using Legion's Raging Inferno on Black Eye. Note that Legion can't equip Azure Stole +6 and can't learn SPR+3:
Average: 1378.45

So in conclusion, for both fire AoE and single target magical damage, Donovan fares worse than Sslen'ck, Meraeador and Legion.

Single target: Sslen'ck > Meraeador > Legion > Donovan
AoE: Meraeador > Sslen'ck > Donovan (I did not test Legion in this regard, but he's probably between Sslen'ck and Donovan)

Gloria is most likely after Donovan in both categories.

EDIT: Deleted the numbers for easier reading

All 3 are lvl 45:

Donovan
- Obelisk
- Feather Crest
- Azure Stole +6
- Sorcerer's Soul
- SoulStone

Sslen'ck
- Drackal Crescent
- Rest same as Donovan

Meraeador
- Flamethrower
- Rest same as Donovan

Stats:

Donovan
- SPR 48
- Empowers FIRE 60%
- M DMG+30%
- M FIRE+20%

Sslen'ck
- SPR 34
- Empowers FIRE 60%
- M DMG+30%

Meraeador
- SPR 42
- Empowers FIRE 10%
- M DMG+30%

I did not do extensive testing, but it is pretty clear that Meraeador > Sslen'ck > Donovan. From damage on groups of 3 Blue Souls in Miasmal Citadel, I had roughly Donovan dealing 1k each, Sslen'ck 2k and Meraeador 3k. Max damage on groups of 4 Skelizards, Donovan 3.7k each, Meraeador 9999.

EDIT: So Donovan, with the most SPR and reaction skills, being a fire mage, did the least fire AoE damage. That's just wrong.

I had been grinding skills in Miasmal Citadel, and I find fire AoE to be the best skill for such an endeavor. There are 4 characters with fire AoE: Donovan, Sslen'ck, Meraeador and Legion. Out of the former 3 (somehow I did not get the chance to use Legion for this), I noticed that the one who did the most damage is actually Meraeador, followed by Sslen'ck, then Donovan. I find it surprising that a fire mage would deal the worst fire damage, especially when there is little else going for him.

When fully geared (best weapons + SPR boosting equipment), Meraeador can do around 7k damage to each Skelizard while Donovan less that half that. Am I alone in noticing this?
